The Merry MAC Players, in conjunction with the Martinsville Arts Council, and by special arrangement with the Samuel French Company, present “The Miracle Worker,” by William Gibson.

Directed by Joan Kimbley, this captivating drama, tells the story of six year old Helen Keller, left blind, deaf and mute by an illness in infancy. Helen’s world is silent, dark and isolating, as she has little communication with those who love her. Desperate to reach their child, Helen’s parents enlist the aid of Annie Sullivan. Through many struggles, both with Helen and her family, Annie is finally able to break through Helen’s barriers.
